The mortal remains of the 31-year-old Indian youth, Patnibin Maxwell, who was killed in a missile attack in Israel, were brought to his hometown in Kerala’s Kollam via an Air India flight from Delhi on Friday evening.

Maxwell’s body was received by Minister of State for External Affairs V Muraleedharan and Israeli Consul General to India, Tammy Ben-Haim, who were present at the Thiruvananthapuram Airport.

As per the deceased’s family, the funeral will be held on Saturday at Kollam by 4 pm.

Maxwell worked at an agricultural farm in Northern Israel and was killed in a missile attack on Monday. The body was brought to Delhi from Tel Aviv early on Friday morning.

In a conversation with PTI, Muraleedharan said, “We thank the Israeli government for cooperating well with the Indian government and taking initiatives to bring Maxwell’s mortal remains to India without delay.”

He said the paperwork is underway to provide compensation for the family of Maxwell.

Lamenting the incident as highly unfortunate, Ben-Haim, who had flown down from Bengaluru to receive the mortal remains, said the Israeli government is waging a war against terrorism and doing everything to protect the natives and foreign nationals in the country from terror attacks.

”We will take care of the family of Maxwell and are working out a compensation plan for his family. The Israeli government is with the family at this unfortunate time, and we will do everything to share their grief,” Ben-Haim said. She further said that Maxwell was killed and two others were injured in a missile attack from the Lebanon side.

The Consul General said that they could only have a peaceful life when they defeat the terrorists in Gaza. Maxwell was killed and another two were injured on Monday when an anti-tank missile fired from Lebanon struck an orchard near Israel’s northern border community of Margaliot. All three were from Kerala.
